North America has around 529 million inhabitants and, at 81 percent, is the most urbanized part of the world, with New York City, Mexico City, Los Angeles, Chicago and Toronto among the largest metropolises. Demographseenish is north ethnically quite different. The three main groups are Caucasian, Mestizo, and Black. There is a significant minority of indigenous Americans and Asians, as well as other, less numerous groups.

Before the discovery and conquest by European nations, North America was already settled by a large number of indigenous ethnic groups who came from Asia in several waves of immigration after the end of the last Ice Age. While the descendants of the last wave (who only settled in the far north) are commonly referred to as Eskimos and Aleutians, the generic term Indian is still popular for everyone else. Canadians also use the term First Nations for all indigenous peoples in the country.

From the beginning of the 16th to the end of the 19th century, countless wars and attempts at assimilation (in part with genocides and ethnocides) led to a drastic reduction in the indigenous population. Only since the beginning of the 20th century has the population increased again almost everywhere. The proportions compared to the population of European descent are now only very small in the densely populated regions (apart from some areas of Mexico and Central America). Significant shares up to majority situations can be found above all in the Indian reservations and in extremely sparsely populated wilderness regions.

The most populous country in North America is the United States with 329.7 million people. The second largest country is Mexico with 1 26 million inhabitants. Canada is 3 5, 9 million people, the country with the third largest population..
